In this case Address portlet is not country specific and unable to find the field Province and county in DM's and BCUI.

Resolution

  • Address is hardcoded in backend, they come to the UI even if it is not configured. Please configure these two fields in data model with visibility "none", if you don't want to use the fields.
  • Making the Fields visibility to NONE will disable the fields for all countries even if the countries are not configured in homeAddress.
  • If the country is not configured in the homeAddress portlet, standard fields will appear in the UI for the country
